Netflix keeps adding new content to its catalogue every month, and April will welcome new seasons of acclaimed TV shows, a couple of comedy specials, and a lot of movies from all genres. With the current coronavirus pandemic, streaming services have been rearranging their schedules and preparing to handle a bigger audience. While some platforms added movies that were originally planned to arrive in later months, Netflix hasn’t had a big shake-up when it comes to content, but it will limit streaming quality in some parts of the world.
March saw the arrival of movies like Spenser Confidential and Lost Girls, new seasons of Castlevania, On My Block, Élite, and Ozark, and new series like Freud, The Letter for the King, Feel Good, and Self-Made. Netflix also added a good amount of licensed content, most notably Goodfellas, Donnie Brasco, Silver Linings Playbook, and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. April will also have a good dose of movies that are either returning to the platform or are being added for the first time, among those Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, David Fincher’s The Social Network, and the complete Matrix series.

Of course, Netflix will also have a lot of original content releasing this month, including some highly anticipated new seasons (such as part 4 of La Casa de Papel and season 4 of The Last Kingdom), documentaries like How To Fix A Drug Scandal, and a lot of movies – from comedies like Coffee & Kareem, to dramas like Tigertail and Sergio, and a touch of action with titles like Extraction. Here’s everything releasing on Netflix in April 2020.
